SIMPLE KOOTU


I do this kootu when I feel bored to cook something and tired. The work is simple, without affecting the vegetable intake. Just mix it with hot rice and a drop of ghee. Fresh, green vegetables are preferred. I used, avarakkai, beans, and some leftover vegetables.

INGREDIENTS:

Any vegetable of your choice - 3 cups
Moong dhal - 2 tablespoons
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Hing - a pinch
Sambhar powder - 1 tsp.
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp.
Scraped coconut - 2 tablespoons
Salt - as per taste

For tempering:
Oil - 1 tsp.
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp.
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp.
Curry leaves - a sprig

METHOD:

Pressure cook dhal alongwith turmeric powder, hing, sambhar powder and vegetables for 2 whistles. When pressure is released, take out, add salt & coconut, give it a boil and temper with given ingredients.
